Maybe it is a nice country house and maybe the other rooms are great, BUT the room we stayed was not good at all. It was a room that stood alone away from the main buildings and I think that it was not suppose to be rent. We had a small, miserable balcony and a view towards San Gimigiano but... More

We stayed in Alice cottage. We didn't opt for the kitchen area. Just room , bathroom. Things to note with this... There is no air con. Only a standing fan which is noisy . There was no where to hang wet clothes outside your room like the other cottages had. There was no view from the room when you sat... More

What more can I add to my previous review. The accommodation/views/hospitality/weather and of course Dante (the cat) were again fantastic. Perhaps we could have done without the odd thunder storm but when the sun shined boy did it shine. We stayed in the cottage Alice, what a setting with breakfast overlooking the valley towards San Gimignano, you have to see... More

Podere Bellavista is a fantastic place to stay while in Tuscany! The property is beautiful. The main house along with the rooms is beautiful, and everything is very well maintained. If you enjoy relaxing in the country side with only the sounds of birds chirping while looking out to gently rolling hills lined with grapes & olive trees = this... More

We were made to feel very welcome with Virginia cooking us a fantastic pasta after we arrived tired from very long flights. The pool which has been remodelled was a must on a hot Tuscany day in a lovely countryside setting. Secure on site car parking, convenient location and fabulous outlook made for a wonderful stay.

We were only there for one night, but could easily have stayed for a week. This is a very beautiful place, set in vineyards and olives, just a short stroll to San Gimignano. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the hosts really went out of their way to make us welcome. Also offered is a great buffet breakfast. There... More

My sister and I were touring Tuscany and found this place on the internet. This was one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. It was so relaxing and right in the middle of vineyards. Great room! Awesome pool! Would love to stay here again.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Podere Bellavista for 3 nights in June 2013. We had an absolutely amazing stay. Beautiful surroundings. Lovely, clean room. Outstanding service - Virginia is a warm and friendly host her goes out of her way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Excellent position from which to explore Tuscan countryside and vineyards. Highly recommended.
